Welcome back to Advent Next a theological podcast curated for curious faith discussions. This week we are talking with Dr. Douglas Morgan, Author of the biography on Lewis C. Sheafe: Apostle to Black America. Sheafe was an African-American pastor of the first interracial SDA church in Washington D.C. Sheafe was a revolutionary figure for his time and Dr. Morgan seeks to dust off the records of history and place him in his rightful prominence as one of the most important leaders of the early church.
Recommended reading for this week is the biography Lewis C. Sheafe: Apostle to Black America by Dr. Douglas Morgan. We want to thank the Adventist Learning Community for making this program possible. This program is part of a larger initiative to educate members on the history of the Black experience in the church.
